In my (seemingly never ending) quest to eliminate all this extra mass that I've accumulated over the last 15 years, I have set out on another weight loss adventure. (cue the groans) Yeah, yeah, I know, same story, different month.
ANYWAY, I've decided to try & tap into a motivation that seemed to work for me last year. Actually, this motive has proven to be the most successful for me so far in all my years of dieting. And that motivation is: MONEY.
My dad blessed with me a membership to a really great gym in my town that has state of the art equipment and a yoga studio, which I'm the most excited about! But I knew that alone was not going to be enough to get me in the mindset of losing some weight. So, I'm doing a "biggest loser" competition with myself. I'm putting money in the pot every week when I weigh in and I'm trying to figure out a financial penalty/reward system that will help keep me on track.
Do my peeps out there have any suggestions?
In the meantime, here are my goals for the next 7 days.
1. Work out at least 3 times
2. Start a food journal
3. Lose 1lb
Bonus Task: Get up enough courage to actually post my weight here next week. Come on Angie, you can do it!
So, for any of you out there who are struggling with diet & exercise issues, tell me what is and isn't working for you. Let's support each other! And tune in next Thursday to see my results.
